General Review


These are great little units when the hardware is stable, they boot fast and are easily reloaded and upgraded via usb or over the network. I have them running in a small terminal server network, very easy to manage and setup. Not sure why but they...

Solid/Stable and more importantly..FAST


I did not need the built in Antivirus software as I used "Trend Micro Enterprise Security for Endpoints Advanced" which allows me to schedule scans and push out updates to my thin clients whenever we need to, just like the rest of my workstations.

Un-box, plug in and start it up. It loads right into windows embedded with RDP and Citrix clients ready for you to start using. This is the little machine that could, it is loaded with USB ports, VGA and Display Port, Gigabit LAN, PS2 and Serial Ports...

Obvious limited functionality which i knew going into the Thin Client market ; No Display port to DVI adapter

Best in Class


Chose this family of products becasue we have a need to rotate one monitor to protrait mode. This was the only Thin Client that could do that (at the time). We have adopted these thin clients for our VDI project after evaluating it's predessors....

Excellent confiuration and foot print ; Excellent power consumption ; Excellent configuration tool suite ; Excellent documentation -- with caveats ; Excellent technical support ; Internal USB ports allows adding additional memory if needed -- we used...

Does not include Display Port adapter for DVI ; Does not include solution for rotating monitors as standard which is needed if you are going to rotate monitors in VMware View 4.0 with PCoIP ; Third party software or Video Driver update is required

The Workhorse Gets Stronger


I used my first gen iMac until I simply could not use it any more with the advancement of sound design software like Pro Tools. This one provides the power and the storage I need for more work and virtually no errors. As the base for a two-monitor...

Excellent Computer


Received the PC after a week delay on backorder but the product itself was essentially brand new. I opened it up as well and the insides were brand new as well. It would be impossible to tell the difference between this refurbished computer and a new...
